Playing with Summer Foods - AAA Cards

What's your fav summer food?  One of mine has got to be watermelon.  
Love it!  
I've got a card with a watermelon slice on it today for you . . . 
It's a seedless watermelon - can you tell?  All the seedless watermelons 
I get have these little white "seeds" anyway (why do they call
 it seedless if it has these white seeds?).  I may never know.
Anyway - at AAA Cards, the challenge this week is for Summer Foods.  
Please be sure to join us.  I cannot wait to see what you have to share!
On my watermelon rind, I actually used a technique called "rocking".  
I began with the lightest green I have (Pistachio Pudding (#131177),
then took the same stamp and rocked the back of it 
(where the back of the rind would be) in Wild Wasabi (#109014).  
Finally, to get the dark green outside of the rind, I rocked the 
stamp in Garden Green.  Then I laid it on the card stock.  
See the different colors?
To make the tasty eating part of the melon, I stamped off the 
Strawberry Slush (#131178) once each time before stamping 
on the card stock.

The card stock is Whisper White (#100730) 
and the Stamp Set is Work of Art (#134111).
Of course, those seeds are Basic Pearl Jewels (#119247).

Fun card, and a great challenge.  See you there!

Just wanted to share that I'm rockin' crutches these days, too!  
Right knee finally gave out - oh, well!

  1. Julia, I'm with you for summer foods and your watermelon card and technique are awesome! My six year old great niece visited for a week and she has boundless energy. I thought my knee was gone after the jump rope contest. Luckily advil helped. Please take care!
